It's amazing to know he lived that long to age 99. Eddie was great!

TV LAND HONORS THE LIFE OF ICONIC HOLLYWOOD ACTOR

EDDIE ALBERT



New York, NY, May 27, 2005 - TV Land will celebrate the life and work of late actor Eddie Albert -- who passed away on Thursday, May 26 in Southern California at the age of 99 -- with a special two hour Green Acres marathon airing on Monday, May 30 beginning at 8pm (ET/PT). Each episode featured in the two hour block was handpicked by TV Land and features some of Albert's most signature moments in his portrayal of "Oliver Wendell Douglas."

"We are deeply saddened by the death of Eddie Albert," said Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land and Nick at Nite. "Eddie had a wonderful career, providing laughter and entertainment for generations. He will truly be missed."

Born in Illinois and raised in Minneapolis, Eddie Albert started his career by working in the circus on the flying trapeze. In the summer of 1936, he made the switch to entertainment and appeared on television -- years before TV was introduced to the public -- in RCA/NBC's first private live performance for radio licensees in New York City. He then went on to star in his first film role in "Brother Rat" in 1938. Since then, he has appeared in dozens of films - including the original version of The Longest Yard in 1974, which was just remade and released this Friday. Over the course of his film career, Mr. Albert received two Oscar nominations: one for best supporting actor in William Wyler's "Roman Holiday" (1953) and another best supporting actor nod for "The Heartbreak Kid" (1972). Although he was acknowledged for his film work, Mr. Albert was most recognized for his starring role as "Oliver Wendell Douglas" in Green Acres opposite Eva Gabor. The series lasted six years (1965-1971) but will forever be remembered.

So very sorry to hear about him. We have watched Green Acres over the yrs ever since it first came on tv in the 60's when I was a kid. So many gone from this show. Eb Dawson is one of the few left from this show. RIP Oliver Wendell Douglas...

Default A List of Ironies

I love Green Acres, and Eddie Albert was awesome.

Isn't it a little ironic that Eva Gabor also died of pneumonia (the illness that took Eddie Albert's life) nearly ten years ago (7/4/95)?

Also, isn't it ironic that Paul Henning, creator of Green Acres, Petticoat Junction, and The Beverly Hillbillies passed away in March of this year as well?

One thing is for sure, he was blessed with a long life.

Also ironic that he died the week that The Longest Yard is being re-released.

I'll be watching the mini-marathon for sure.

Unhappy 'Green Acres' star Eddie Albert dies

From the Daily News:

'Green Acres' star Eddie Albert dies

By LEO STANDORA
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER


Two-time Oscar nominee Eddie Albert, best known as the befuddled Park Avenue lawyer who sought happiness down on the farm in television's "Green Acres," has died at his Los Angeles-area home. He was 99.


Albert, a life-long fitness enthusiast who was still doing pushups and shooting baskets from his wheelchair in his driveway until last month, succumbed to complications from pneumonia after a bout of flu, publicist Dick Guttman said.

His son, Edward, was holding his hand and other loved ones were at his bedside at the end. "He died so beautifully and so gracefully that literally this morning I don't feel grief, I don't feel loss," Edward said.

Albert, a prolific actor whose career spanned nearly six decades and included roles in more than 250 movies, TV shows and stage productions, developed Alzheimer's disease 10 years ago but was still happy and active, his family said.

The Illinois-born star, whose full name was Edward Albert Heimberger, made his Hollywood debut in the 1938 picture "Brother Rat," co-starring with another little-known performer of that era, Ronald Reagan.

He went on to earn Academy Award nominations as Best Supporting Actor for his 1953 role as Gregory Peck's photographer sidekick in "Roman Holiday" and his 1972 role as Cybill Shepherd's father in "The Heartbreak Kid."

But Albert's greatest popularity came on "Green Acres" from 1965 to 1971 as Oliver Douglas, a lawyer who settles in a rural town with his glamorous wife, Eva Gabor, and finds himself perplexed by the antics of a host of eccentrics, including a pig named Arnold Ziffel.

Albert left Hollywood during World War II and served in the Navy, where he saw combat in the South Pacific. He won a Bronze Star for his heroic rescue of wounded Marines on the island of Tarawa, his son said.

His other films included "Carrie," "Oklahoma!," "The Roots of Heaven," "The Longest Day," "Miracle of the White Stallions," "The Longest Yard" and "Escape to Witch Mountain." He was married to the dancer-actress Margo for 40 years until her death in 1985. In addition to his son, Albert is survived by a daughter, Maria Albert Zucht, and two granddaughters.
